Support 3 children after fathers Covid-19 death

Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’oon (to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return)

Ejaz Ashraf (40 yrs old) was a hardworking father of 3 from East London (Newbury Park), in the UK - he departed back to his Creator on 19th January 2021 leaving his wife and children behind.  He died from contracting Covid-19 and fought for his life - but Allah had other plans for him.  And in Allah we trust and to Him we will all return.

He was a genuine and hardworking man that has left a huge void in many hearts.
He was a loving husband and a devoted father to his three beautiful young children, full of life: Ramees, Fatima and baby Muhammed.

May Allah SWT grant his family and children the strength and patience to bear this immeasurable loss of their nearest and dearest father. Aameen

Let's help the family and thank Allah for His blessings
We have started a fund to help alleviate some of the financial hardship his wife currently faces in raising three children on her own.

Please help this family in their time of need
In these times of loss and sadness, it is our community that can help us to make it through, to support the most vulnerable.

The Prophet (S.A.W) told us that:
‘Sadaqah extinguishes sins like water extinguishes fire’.

Be generous and get close to Allah's Messenger:

‘The Prophet (saw) said, “The one who cares for an orphan and myself will be together in Paradise like this,“and he (saw) held his two fingers together to illustrate’. [Bukhari]

’Blessed is the wealth of the Muslim, from which he gives to the poor, the orphan and the wayfarer’. [Muslim]

With these examples in mind - please do not hesitate - any support you are able to offer will be greatly appreciated.   It will all add up.  Be generous.  May Allah SWT reward your generosity in this life and the next (which will never end). Ameen

We will all end up in our graves eventually - and may Allah give us all the opportunity help this family and thank Him for our blessings.

Jazaaakillah Khayr
